Today I received a treasure trove I won for $40 on eBay. Someone was selling 18 miscellaneous reels and ten packs of splicing tapes; they didn't list the titles but from the photo I could see a couple of color/sound Mighty Mouses, a Castle Apollo 11 reel, a Tom and Jerry and some white boxes containing 50- and 100-foot reels whose titles I couldn't read. I figured, what the heck. Low bid.

Wow! The white boxed ones are a goldmine! I watched some of them tonight, including the Willis O'Brien "Creation" test reel, a color George Pal Puppetoon, Koko the Clown in "Tantalizing Fly" and Winsor McKay's "Little Nemo." Interestingly, the last two are mute but striped, so I can add scores.

There's also a Bugs Bunny World War II bond rally short. It's a two minute song with guest appearances by Porky and the old-style Elmer. The color is shockingly good. I wonder what stock it could be on? I started another silent Fleischer reel with a musical score added but I had to stop it because it's too dry. I'll try again after a good cleaning. These films came from companies called Glenn Film Services and Reel Images. Anyone ever heard of them?

Finally, I screened Betty Boop and Koko in "Ha Ha Ha." It's one of those prints that was hand-colored (not computer colored) in the late sixties when National Telefilm Associates was trying to get them back into syndication. The color's not great, especially with fade, but those are some strange cartoons!

Congratulations, Kurt, this is really a good find. I didn't know some lab had printed super 8 prints of the Creation test reel...

Last night DVD projection:
Trick R Treat (very nice and underrated horror anthology)

Gian,

Your "Once Upon" looks great on the screen.

From Michale's Ben Hur and Gian's Once Upon, I can say that Germany lab did a great job by having a true skin color on their prints (and avoid blueish tint).

Congratulations!

WOW!

The colors on that OUATITW are outstanding, Gian! I love that close-up of Henry Fonda ... his eyes!

Osiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! How are you?
Thanks a lot. I am very satisfied with this purchase, a very good print and a title I really love. And the soundtrack? Ennio Morricone did a great job. A real masterpiece.

Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah screening with Disney's SONG OF THE SOUTH on 8mm.
Very enjoyable print on Kodak SP. Not a Derann, but color is holding very well. And I love that song!

Speaking of sharing Gian, thnks for sharing with me... [Big Grin]

Tonight I watched my new Griffith courtesy of our very own Gian...This is a great little actioner, that goes beyond the Griffith cross-cutting and puts you into the chase...The track is a fitting piano score. It is so awesome to be able to watch these classics in such great quality, so thanks Gian! !!

Monday Nov 9th, 9 PM, screened some reels to show the projector to my parents and brothers, who had not seen it in action yet.

Started with an european edit of "Easy Street", then showed some cartoons (600' reel with four shorts), before showing the U8 digest of "Animal House", spooled onto one 600 ft reel, and then finishing off with A&C's "Whos on First?" from Universal 8.

--------------------
Well who’s on first? Yeah. Go ahead and tell me. Who. The guy on first. Who. The guy playin’ first base. Who. The guy on first. Who is on first! What are you askin’ me for? I’m askin’ you!
